Day Centre Care

Day Centre Clients

Age NI day centres provide a opportunity for activity and friendship for older people. Some of our centres specialise in serving older people with dementia.

We have seen first hand how our day centres can dramatically change older people's lives for the better.

Some people come for the social aspect and activities. Some come for a break from caring responsibilities at home. Some are dealing with relationship breakdowns or bereavement. They are invaluable, fun places where older people leave their troubles at the door and enjoy each other’s company over a hot meal.

How Age NI day centres make a difference

Watch Mark McMillan speak about how the Age NI Day Centre in Ballynahinch has transformed his mum's life.
